More Ken Jennings

From “The TV Column” in Tuesday’s Washington Post, which discusses today’s Jeopardy!:

Interestingly, however, Jennings is scheduled to be a guest on tonight’s “Late Show With David Letterman,” which airs on CBS, which is owned by Viacom, which also owns King World.

And, in another of those incredible coincidences, “Nightline” — which airs on ABC, many of whose stations carry “Jeopardy!” — will this very night devote its entire broadcast to that show. ABC News correspondent Judy Muller will interview Jennings and show creator Merv Griffin, a “Nightline” rep told The Washington Post’s TV Team, while emphasizing that the show is about “a day in the life of ‘Jeopardy!,’ ” as opposed to, say, a show about Ken Jennings losing. Because they want to make sure we get word to you that Jennings is on “Nightline” tonight, but they don’t want to be accused of letting the cat out of the bag about Jennings losing. I’m just guessing here that the “Nightline” folks do not even realize the episode is going to air during the November sweeps.
